Around four months ago I was hospitalised with severe vomiting, however I recovered and within a week I was home again. My mental health seemed fine at this point. Over the upcoming months I was constantly unwell again with severe constipation and in and out of hospital (I have since been diagnosed with IBS), around November time I noticed I was clock watching all day. I didn't know why, or what time I was waiting for but I looked at my phone or a clock around 50 times an hour. I also realised nothing made me happy any more, I was always weepy and upset. I went to my doctors who put me on citalopram (which have since been changed to sertraline) and advised I saw a counsellor - which I do I see a one to one weekly. I just wanted some advice on how to cope and how to get better, I cant live my life like this I'm only 21. I have fantastic support of all my family, many of them having gone through depression or anxiety themselves. I'm sick of waking up in a morning with no happiness. I cant bare to sit and watch television which isn't like me at all, I cant read or concentrate on anything. I just want to get better and be the happy and carefree girl I was before. I have no worries, or nothing that I can think could be causing these problems.
Any help would be really kindly received
